M--

The visor advertises the Stirndruckfrei system, but it is not present.
Also, I have never seen a Balke w/ a CW stirndruckfrei system

I personally would pass on it.

Agreed, not the correct sweatband for a Balke but it's possible it could be a period replacement. Cap has obviously been worn and has repairs that look old with no attempt to hide them which is positive sign in my opinion.

This is a Balke Admiral which sold a while back on Ratisbons.
Note the standard Balke stirndruckfrei:
